A thirty minute, single camera comedy about a quirky southern belle relocating to a New York City after finding love with her long time online gaming rival and having a baby, but this fish out of water quickly discovers Brooklyn, New York isn’t Littlefoot, MS and “having it all” doesn’t mean she has it all figured out.
Meet Medium Brown
Moving back to her parents’ house in Littlefoot, MS to pursue her dreams as either a celebrity chef, local news anchor or a life coach has come with plenty of missteps for the Southern University graduate.
Throwing caution to the wind, she finally meet up with her longtime Words With Friends rival at the National Society of Black Engineers conference, where she was swept off her feet and onto a hotel bed. Ten short months later, the two welcomed her first and his second daughter into the world.
Moving to a big city was never on any of Medium’s vision boards, but with tons of convincing she moved with the love of her life to the Big Apple.
A new city, a fresh new start, and a new family with a man that doesn’t want her to work is a welcomed change for the drowning in college debt alum. Quickly, she discovers that this balancing act between wifey, mommy and dreamer is a slippery slope.
Meet Medium’s Inner Thoughts & Emotions
During each episode the audience will meet, see and hear Medium’s “Friends” who are her inner thoughts and emotions, but are played out live for the audience. While Medium can only hear these Thought and Emotions the audience will SEE and HEAR them, they control her every impulsive and idiosyncratic move.
Here’s are some of them we meet in the pilot and during the season.
